MAC Fashion Punch, Lots of Laughs, Short & Snappy Lipglasses

MAC Fashion Punch Lipglass ($10.00 for 0.08 fl. oz.) is a medium peachy-brown with warm undertones and gold pearl. The coverage was semi-opaque, but the creamier finish made this one noticeably settle into lip lines, though it went on evenly (which doesn’t always happen with this type of color or product!). I felt like the shininess of the gloss helped to disguise some of the settling from a normal viewing distance. This shade wore well for five hours and was lightly hydrating. MAC Spanking Haute (LE, $20.00) is cooler (95% similar). Surratt Beauty Au Naturelle (P, $32.00) is brighter (95% similar). MAC Overspiced (LE, $15.00) is lighter, brighter (95% similar). NARS Instant Crash (LE, $26.00) is lighter (95% similar). Urban Decay Kinky (P, $26.00) is lighter, brighter (90% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty Satisfaction (214) (DC, $28.00) is darker (90% similar). Maybelline Charming Cocoa (125) (LE) is brighter, warmer (90% similar). Anastasia Undressed (P) is lighter (85% similar). Chanel Sensuel (11) (P, $34.00) is warmer (85% similar). MAC Fashion Punch (LE, $15.00) is darker, warmer (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Make Up For Ever M402, M500, M501 Artist Rouge Lipsticks

Make Up For Ever M402 Artist Rouge Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a bold, medium-dark red with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish. It had good color payoff that applied evenly and smoothly without emphasizing the texture of my lips too much.

MAC x Star Trek Pleasure Planet & Set to Stun Lipglasses

MAC Pleasure Planet Lipglass ($17.00 for 0.16 fl. oz.) is described as a “muted gold shimmer.” It’s a medium, yellowed gold with warm gold, pink, and copper flecks of sparkle. It had semi-sheer coverage, so it imparted some color but mostly shine and sparkle on the lips. There was a moderate tackiness, which made it longer-wearing, but it wasn’t too thick or goopy on. It lasted for four hours on me and was lightly hydrating.
Estee Lauder Citron Kiss (LE, $23.00) is cooler (90% similar). Maybelline Gleaming Gold (120) (LE)(90% similar). Bobbi Brown Candlelight (LE, $24.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Bobbi Brown Canary (P, $24.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Bobbi Brown Pure Gold (LE, $24.00) is warmer (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Make Up For Ever C103, C104, C105 Artist Rouge Lipsticks

Make Up For Ever Artist Rouge Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.12 oz.) is supposed to be long-wearing, “extremely pigmented,” and hydrating. It is available in two finishes–Cream and Matte, indicated by the C or M in the beginning of each shade’s name. The Cream formula is richly pigmented, lightly creamy without being too emollient or slippery, and go on smoothly and feel good while worn (wear ranges from four to eight hours, depending on the shade). The Matte formula is thinner and clings somewhat to lips, though it goes on nicely and doesn’t tug, and it doesn’t always look flattering on as it can emphasize imperfections on my lips but really depends on the shade, as some look great on. I found the Cream formula to be moderately hydrating, while the Matte formula was slightly to moderately drying. All shades had a slight, rosy scent to them, though I didn’t notice any taste.

NARS Consuming Red & Infatuated Red Velvet Matte Lip Pencils

NARS Consuming Red Velvet Matte Lip Pencil ($26.00 for 0.086 oz.) is a deep red with warm undertones and a matte finish. It had very nearly opaque color coverage that applied with smooth, even color. The pencil felt smooth and velvety along the lips, and it was easy to maneuver around the edge of the lips as well as to fill in the color. The texture is thin, and if my lips are at all dry or flaky, I find the formula can highlight those imperfections noticeably, but if you exfoliate prior to applying, it should look much smoother. The color wore well for six hours, but it was somewhat drying after four and a half hours. NARS Amsterdam (P, $26.00) is glossier (90% similar). MAC Viva Glam I (P, $17.00) is glossier (90% similar). NARS Infatuated Red (LE, $25.00) is brighter, cooler (90% similar). NARS 413 BLKR (LE, $28.00) is glossier (90% similar). Colour Pop Avenue (P, $6.00) is less glossy (90% similar). Make Up For Ever M402 (P, $22.00) is lighter, brighter (85% similar). Kat Von D Nosferatu (P, $20.00) is lighter, warmer (80% similar). MAC Kiss Me Quick (P, $19.50) is lighter, brighter (80% similar). MAC Deeply Adored (LE, $17.00) is lighter, brighter, glossier (80% similar). MAC Studded Kiss (P, $17.00) is warmer, glossier (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Charlotte Tilbury Secret Salma Lipstick ($32.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a muted, medium rosy mauve with subtle, warm undertones and a matte finish.
